“The way she can totally inhabit a role is quite amazing – considering that she was acting with a well-known British actor it was impossible not to focus on her and only her. She is completely believable as the character she played (Sergeant Beverly) and I cannot think of her as Anniwaa Buachie ‘playing’ a character but as that character.”
John Adams – CEO Evolutionary films – AUX
“Anniwaa’s talent overwhelmed the cast and crew, her performance was at the same high caliber level as her co actors, the renowned Tichina Arnold (Martin), Teyonah Parris (Dear White People) and Erica Ash (Scary Movie). “
Bill Johnson, Director, Emmy Award Winner – Survivor’s Remorse
“I cast Anniwaa in the supporting lead role as she obtained a natural presence and grace. She was unbelievably devoted to her role and went beyond her station, researched her role in depth and made exceptional acting choices. Her performance was mesmerising, she beautifully portrayed the character.”
Dermot Boyd, Director – Holby city
“Her dedication to the role throughout the intensive development process and her commitment while shooting was of the highest level and her performance in the film is truthful and compelling. Anniwaa has an original voice and natural talent.”
Suri Krishnamma, Bafta Nominated British Film Director
“Anniwaa played the leading role of the notorious Joan of Arc, and like her character she was bold, fearless, and a true pioneer of what we know to be honest talent. Her understanding and grasp of classical text is like no other actress and her ability to connect with an audience by her stillness, discipline, precision, flexibility, and vulnerability contributed to the success of Outspoken (sold out performances!”
Michael J Sonntag- President of Studio C Artists
“Anniwaa is a truly inspirational individual and dedicated to creating opportunities for communities. As a Ghanaian-British actress, her presence in our workshops provides our children with the hope and belief that nothing is impossible; it is not where you start, but where you finish that matters…..In an industry dominated by white males, it is important that we support an actress like Anniwaa who is unswervingly committed to her craft and determined to inspire young actors.”
Blaire Baron Larsen & Julia Wyson, Artistic Directors, Los Angeles Drama Club

Philip Headley CBE, Director Emeritus Theatre Royal Stratford East
“Not only is she a hard-working and consummate actress but she has shown astounding dedication to ensuring that theatre plays a crucial role in cultural discourse. In her capacity as a theatre maker she has proven to be dedicated, determined and is a true inspiration to theatre makers of her generation. She continues to excel in her craft and I hold her in the highest regard both personally and professionally.”
Shane Dempsey, Artistic Director – Fragments Theatre
“I have worked with Anniwaa twice, she always does an excellent job proving herself to be a highly skilled, professional and reliable actress. Anniwaa is intelligent and competent and I would have no hesitation in both recommending her to others.”
Kate Stafford, Artistic Director- Bilimankhwe Arts
“Anniwaa Buachie’s laudable ambition was realised with an assured production of seven new plays by seven young writers on Monday night at Theatre 503 ( Golden Delilah 7:1 Beyond Control). Playing to packed houses over two sittings, Anniwaa had also assembled an array of directing and acting talent, many of them garlanded with awards (she herself the recipient of the Alan Bates Outstanding Newcomer Award) which fulfilled Golden Delilah’s aim to produce new writing promoting strong female roles.”
Elizabeth Lynch, Director – Evolving Words
“She is a hardworking actress, willing and able to rise to any challenge. Her infectious positivity, lucidity and conspicuous aptitude contributed to a successful production. She is a strong inspirational force, an oracle to actors! Anniwaa has a remarkable talent.”
Caroline Steinbeis, JMK Award Winning Director
The Legend of Hamba – 2014 , A Tiata Fahodzi production
‘The Legend of Hamba’ is conceived as a 20-30 minute physical picaresque, loosely based on the ‘The Everyman’ Morality Play. It follows the fortunes of a central character, Hamba, through three ‘Ages of Man’: The Ages of Conquest, Excess and Harvest. Anniwaa performed the lead role of pride.
Afridiziak: “This play is an experience, perfect for the outdoors and a great way to spend part of a sunny afternoon. Yes it’s weird and at times confusing but isn’t that what life’s journey is? Hamba just happens to make a lot of noise whilst going through it! I would definitely encourage people to go along and experience “The Legend of Hamba” for themselves.” For the full review, click here.
